Manipur pushes towards development as CM inaugurates multiple projects

IMPHAL | SEPT 18, 2020:

Manipur Chief Minister N. Biren Singh inaugurated six projects under the Home and Planning departments on Friday.

He also laid the foundation stones for 46 different projects under the Home, Police, Transport, IT, Planning, Tourism, and Municipal Administration, Housing & Urban Development (MAHUD) departments at the CM's complex.

In his address to the gathering, Singh said, "The various projects are in tandem with his Go To Hills mission and hills had to be prioritised as it has been lagging vis-à-vis the valley".

He also inaugurated the hostel for doctors and teachers, which is a 22 room building at Churachandpur, Borobekra and Singhat. The building had costed the exchequer over Rs. 3 crore.

We may note that three out of the 19 buildings will be used for transit accommodation while they will inaugurate the remaining 16 by December this year.

While laying the foundation stones for the construction of five helipads at Jiribam, Tamenglong, Parbung, Moreh and Thanlon at an estimated cost of Rs. 40 crore, Singh said that there has been peace in the hills as people now want development compared to earlier incidents of kidnapping and assault on construction people and engineers.

The two storeyed barrack at Manipur Police Training College in Pangei including the Model Police Station at Porompat were also inaugurated via video conferencing.

"The entire projects, i.e. the 46 projects and the completed 6 projects – would cost approximately Rs. 180 crore," Singh said while announcing his plan to build the Nongpok Thong (Eastern Gate) at Kangla for approximately Rs. 4.6 crore.  Others present during the programme included PDS Minister Karam Shyam, Manipur DGP L.M Khaute and other dignitaries.
